Navigation from place to place is a fundamental human activity and an integral part of everyday life. Where am I? Where am I heading? What is my quickest route?

Wayfinding can be defined as all of the ways in which people interpret their surroundings to orient and navigate a physical space. It is a holistic concept with a focus on making all parts of the landscape easy to read and understand.  In its conventional sense, Wayfinding includes elements such as physical signs, digital information, maps, landmarks or the landscape itself.

Car sharing is booming in the US and new sharing frameworks are emerging to suit different user needs. Two significant changes to car sharing over the past few years include the introduction of both short, one-way journey car sharing (such as Car2Go) and informal ‘sharing economy’ car sharing (such as RelayRides). Both are enjoying an increase in use and popularity, and in the US, it’s easy to understand why.
